Post ovulation cramping

Posted by   + Show Post
How many days post ovulation should you get cramping? I o'd Friday or Saturday, not 100% sure, but I am still getting cramps. Feels like period cramps. It's not all day either, just in the evenings. Tonight, they actually hurt.?opionions? experience?

I know the feeling!

Quoting fleurmegs:

I'm 5DPO today (I didn't realize I was that far along in my cycle, I haven't been paying attention) and I just started cramping yesterday. Ugh. And I'm super bloated. Not very comfortable this cycle :(

Last month was my first cycle on Clomid and I had pretty bad cramps for 3-4 days after I o'ed.


Quoting hmccord:

I sure hope someone can answer for both of us! Last cycle, I had some mild cramping until I o'd, then it stopped. I spotted that time, but not this time. This was my first cycle on clomid, so maybe that why? I don't know, but it hurts:(


Quoting beachlove512:

I was just wondering this today! I'm either 2 or 3dpo (I think 2 but FF says 3). Anyway, I've been getting cramping for the past couple of days. It's so weird, I don't know why I'm getting cramps. I don't remember getting this in previous cycles. I should look at past charts.

I read somewhere it could be from the uterine lining thickening or from the ovaries being sore. But I don't really know. Maybe someone else will have an explanation.

I do this too sometimes a week to ten days before af shows.. I wish pregnancy symptoms were not like af symptoms it's so confusing every month.

Was it all day or just a few hours? Mine are just a few hours in the evening. It's so bizarre

It was weird. It started a few days before I o'ed and it was just random sharp pains here and there. The day before and the day of o it was just horrible cramps all day, and then for 3-4 days after o it was only random times throughout the day. It wasn't like just in the evening or morning, but it would hurt for a little while and stop, then start again a little later. It really sucked, and this month I am on CD 13 today and I have horrible cramps and pains in my left side. Last night I was curled up in a ball crying and DH was trying to convince me to go to the ER. It's a lot worse than last month.
